Next week, 16 teams from the area will come to Oregon for the fourth annual Alumni Hockey Tournament on May 10-12.
Players ranging in age from 21-55 will bring back the good old day and play hockey for three days.
On the surface it might seem like just another hockey tournament but this year they will be honoring one very special hockey mom.
"Now I have to bring this up.� This is a fish I caught in 2009 its a 32-inch walleye," said Gene Tempel.
The 66-year-old likes to tell stories about his family and hockey.
"I have 11 grandkids, eight girls and three boys," Tempel says. A roofer by trade, the father of four spent much of his life as a youth, junior and high school hockey coach.
"I had skated since I was 5 years old in Illinois on the river," Tempel said.
But his true love is his wife, Becky.
